Here are some simple ways to improve your smile. 

  • Use lip moisturizer so your lips don’t chap and crack.
  • Brush regularly. Recommendation is to get a new toothbrush every six months.
  • Use a tooth paste that is right for you. There are so many to choose from, find one you like and stick with it. 
  • Floss. No excuses, they make it too easy now with the flossing sticks. I also use toothpicks after meals.
  • Eat crunchy vegetables. Keep your teeth and gums strong.
  • Visit your dentist for a cleaning twice a year. Most insurance cover both visits to some extent.
